Climbing Can Help Your Dancing

By Joel Torgeson

Readers, I admit it. I procrastinated on this month's article. I put it off in favor silly things like homework. I apologize.

One of the things that has occupied my column-writing time is my job as a rock-wall attendant. I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but I actually moonlight as a pretty dedicated rock climber; when I'm not dancing or studying, I'm probably climbing. So for you reading pleasure, a list of things about climbing, some of which have to do with dancing!

Hopefully you're at least mildly intrigued by rock-climbing, because this is almost certainly not the last you'll be hearing about it from me. For now, happy dancing!
